Don't Be Afraid of the Dork

Covered in dog hair, Obsessed with books, Wondering what it's all about. I suspect the answer is ice cream and the ocean.

The Quarter-Acre Farm: How I Kept the Patio, Lost the Lawn, and Fed My Family for a Year - Spring Warren This book works best if read as an "year in the life" type memoir with a focus on gardening. It has a few interesting and instructional tidbits but is primarily a pretty entertaining description the author's quest to grow 75% of her food for a year. At one point she collects the snails from her yard and cooks up some escargot. It's a fun read and has some pretty good recipes interspersed.
